      Description

      In an attempt to simplify video module installation I tried this :

      START===================================================
      sudo apt-add-repository ppa:archivematica/externals
      sudo apt-get update
      sudo apt-get install ffmpeg

      download and install Islandora video.js module
      https://github.com/Islandora/islandora_videojs/archive/7.x-1.6.zip
      NOTE: I installed as module rather than as library.

      download and install Islandora Solution Pack Video
      https://github.com/islandora/islandora_solution_pack_video/archive/7.x-1.6.zip

      Configure Video solution pack as follows:
      Viewer - select video.js player
      Keep original files after ingest - Checked
      Path to ffmpeg executable /usr/bin/ffmpeg
      Create .mkv derivative - Checked
      Create display MP4 locally - Checked
      MP4 audio codec - aac (not libfaac)
      Create OGG locally - Checked
      Path to Theora executable - ffmpeg2Theora (leave default)
      Create thumbnail locally - Checked
      Play OBJ datastream if MP4 is not present - Checked
      Maximum files size for playing OBJ 500 MB

      Specify in /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini (values can vary by setup)
      upload_max_filesize=250M
      post_max_size=250M
      memory_limit=512M

      sudo service apache2 reload
      sudo service apache2 restart
      END=====================================================

      This works for me. The only issue is that it creates an error log "video.js not found" - presumably because the video module is looking for it in the /libraries folder. My guess that it might be easier to fix this than to keep the long and complicated video module installation as it currently stands.
      Video module tests all pass except two items in .ogg derivative creation. I can live with this.

      I am submitting this for your review. As I am not a developer I do not know what/if any repercussions this module installation method may have.

      Thanks
